You guys. I’ve been so excited this week to share this awesome news + giveaway with you! H&M is opening up their very first store in Kansas, in Oak Park Mall on Thursday, September 19, 2013. And I’ve got the details on this stylish and affordable Swedish retailer’s newest location to share with you. And stick around until the end for an awesome GIVEAWAY! 🙂 H&M is one of my favorite places to shop for trendy clothing, accessories, and basics at amazingly low prices! Seriously, whenever I’m at the Country Club Plaza, I must stop by this store. And they have some super cute stuff for little people too — Austin has tons of clothing from there!
On Thursday, September 19, 2013, doors will open at noon at Oak Park Mall. The first 200 shoppers in line will get an H&M shirt and an Access to Fashion Pass, valued from $10-$300, in addition to other offers for the whole family! But you should probably get there early to make sure you are one of the first 200. Not sure if you knew this, but H&M is the first fashion company to roll out a global garment recycling program. Through this initiative, H&M customers at Oak Park Mall can help save natural resources and contribute to reduced environmental impact by donating old and unwanted pieces of clothing from any brand while in the store. Customers who come to donate on opening day will be entered to win a gift card valued up to $100.
H&M, one of the world’s largest retailers known for offering fashion-forward apparel and quality basics, is also the largest user of organic cotton in the world. The store at Oak Park Mall will offer the best of sustainable fashion through its Autumn 2013 collection. Allowing Overland Park consumers to shop in style, H&M will offer the latest autumn trends such as cropped jackets, chunky sweaters, and boots for women, and hooded coats, tailored pants, and knit hats for men. Here are some pieces I am eyeing for myself from the Autumn collection~!
